DIY Sea Glass Vases

Things I love. Our family’s hair messy and wavy, salty smells, riding waves, lazy days, even sand in my suit because it means I am on my very favorite vacation. The beach!
Dawn dish soap
I bought this one because it seemed the most “beachy” to me. Plus, it was the most girly colors for our 6-pack. Next up mix 2 parts glue to 1 part water. You might have to add a bit more glue (not much) to have it be a nice smooth but easily paintable consistency. Add a drop of Dawn and mix it up again. This by the way is the recipe for homemade Modge-Podge. How about that? I first learned that this summer, I must be living under a rock! Choose the color you want, you can also mix colors if that is your thing, and add a few drops until you are happy with how it looks. We stuck with blue/green together, and pink and purple alone. 6 girls 🙂
I let them dry and sprayed with a polyurethane. The only reason I did that was because I hoped it would keep the paint from scratching off as easy. We weren’t there to give the gorgeous sea glass vases to Grandma for her birthday but we got this picture from Ohio, she loved them!
